***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION

Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

Taylormade M3 Defective/Fake?

Just bought this new M3 from tgw.com which is an authorized online retailer from taylormade.com. I noticed that the line on under the M3 logo isn't straight. Could it be fake or defective? Or am I just being paranoid? I just wouldn't think that taylormade would sell a club with a small defect like that. The rest of it looks good to me.

    I've bought from TGW for years. They're legit. I think just something TM quality control missed. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Really? Why doesn't wrx just create a "is this authentic or not" thread to keep this crap from coming in here every day?

    TM just doesn’t have good quality control. If you aren’t happy, send it back. TGW can send it back to TM as defective due to some dumb paint job. They have heard crazier, I’m sure. <br />
    <br />
    It’s purely cosmetic. Why would TM not sell this club? Can you post more pictures? It doesn’t even look that bad!

    Bingo. Using the correct forum for the correct type of question. And it’s not even a question the search function could have answered.

    With the driver costing $500, I would at least expect them to put the sticker on the right way

    you're good, as others have sad purely cosmetic. i bought the spider arc literally the first day it came out ($300+ after customization from the tour department) and the paint between the head and the face insert was shotty. they offered to replace it real quick so im sure they'd do the same for you. again, no one would have EVER seen it, no impact on play, can't even see it if you looked for it, but i knew it was there and i knew how much i just paid...
